Global design project challenge #004, and Mojo Monday #417

I was inspired to have a go at 2 challenges today- Global design challenge and mojo Monday. The Global design project challenge, because it's featuring one of my favourite designers, Louise Sharp, we were challenged to "Case" (copy, acknowledge ,(and) share, everything) a card she had designed.

 When I see Louise's work, it's usually has a sort of softness, dreamyness about it.... It's hard to describe.... Always stunningly beautiful anyway. And I really wanted to have a go.... But because we LITERALLY could go in any direction, I sort of needed a little bit of structure.... An idea where to start, and in my inbox this morning was the Mojo Monday sketch- so I combined the two.... I must admit though that the final product doesn't look TOO much like the original sketch!!! Here are our inspirations-

And here's my final card- 
I took inspiration from Louise's colour scheme, very vanilla, crumb cake, and gold.
I also incorporated the metalic wire element and heart. Super cute for an anniversary card! Thank you Louise for the inspiration!! 
GDP/MM inspired card
the flower is highlighted with crystal effects- it shines!
Time less love anniversary card
The sketch, as you can see is a little different. The wider border is at the top (I turned the sketch on its side) and the block of 3 embellishments, I incorporated into the sentiment area. 
As it was tall and skinny challenge, I created a long and thin card, that is side opening. The measurements are-3.5 x12 inches, the card fold is at 6 inches.

I really like the "timeless love" stamp set out of our Annual catalog. Anniversaries are very important in our family, so its always good to have a great "happy anniversary" font. weirdly, I only have this one "happy anniversary" sentiment!!

I hope you like my project, I really enjoyed making it! 


  1. Gorgeous card Petra!! You have done amazing with both of these challenges. Thank you so much for supporting us at GDP.
